I am not offended by nekkid boobies and all I see (24 hours after the upload) is an MPEG2 file that opens a new blank white page, but never loads.

There is no streaming click and play on-screen version on the info page.

Don't know what to tell you, kareneliot. The page says it's been downloaded 107 times, but I can't get it to work, either! Maybe I'm too much of a computard for this. Could somebody who DID download it please upload it again?

I can't tell you why the film, at last check, had no derived files or wasn't embedded. Every time I upload something, after a few hours there's derived files, thumbnails, a running time, and you can stream it here on site, and I never had to do a thing. I don't think it was anything you did on your end that was wrong. There is at least one file that is downloadable, so at least you succeeded in making it available.

I've downloaded the MPEG2. It plays fine in VLC, and I can confirm that the chesticular region of healthy young women is visible at times. However, the video quality is low, with compression artifacts making for poor viewing in an area much larger than the 478x359 file resolution. I don't see much to gain by transcoding and re-uploading the movie.

The encoder that's used to make derivatives isn't what I or others would call robust. It's quite touchy really, and will produce derivatives that are out of sync, or won't produce derivatives at all if your uploaded file isn't just so. The container format of your uploaded file (MPEG2 video/AC3 audio) is nonstandard for MPEG2-PS, which may explain why the encoder didn't make derivatives. It's really hard to say for sure. The encoder is as mysterious, and unpredictable as other workings of IA. I can say that IA's encoder will often produce good derivatives from AVI files, though it isn't a format that IA says it supports. Screwy stuff.
